“Not to be confused with a proper NYC Deli, but very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Sandwiches, salads, and hot dogs are the fare du jour at The Deli. Meats & cheese are freshly sliced and they have quite a variety, including vegan & gluten free options. Never had a bad meal here and I usually order from here about once a week. If the weather's nice, sitting outside in the Patio is quite enjoyable.

If anyone is wondering how the hot dogs showed up on the menu, the previous restaurant at this location was called Snoop Doggie Dog and sold primarily hot dogs. When it went out, the gang from Downtown Pizza next door moved in. I'm pretty sure the hot dogs are an acknowledgment of what was there previously.

As an added bonus, they will deliver as well.

“Great Hot Dogs”

After a bad experience at another downtown establishment, we found this great place. The best hot dogs ever. Several different varieties and you can't go wrong here. GREAT service and value. A definite repeat!!
